During this delicious 2-hour tasting adventure at Allentown’s Sam Adams Grille in Lehigh Valley, a knowledgeable food & beer pro will introduce you to 8 craft beers and a delicious assortment of chocolate. Located merely footsteps from where the beer was born at Boston Beer’s famous Sam Adams Brewery, you can enjoy some of the freshest beer you’ve ever tasted. An owner of City Food Tours and beer connoisseur, Eric Matzke, will share some fun facts about how beer is made, the stories behind each of the 8 brews you taste and pairing suggestions.

But this isn’t just about beer! This event will highlight one of beer’s favorite sweets--chocolate. Not only are beer and chocolate a dynamic duo, but it is also a cutting edge pairing! Your host will share the inside scoop on how chocolate is made and tips on what to look for in the finest examples as you sample cocoa beans, cocoa butter and cocoa nibs.

At this tasting, you’ll enjoy:

• Generous samples (equal to more than 3 pints) of 8 distinct craft beers, representing a range of styles, including at least 5 iconic Sam Adams brews.
• More than a ¼ lb (per person) of 5 different gourmet chocolates including white, Venezuelan milk, dark, Kokoleka bittersweet and a lavender infused chocolate.
• Samples of malted barleys and hops to smell and taste.
• A goody bag of chocolates to bring home!

Let your taste buds be your guide as we explore complementary and contrasting pairings of chocolate and beer. It’s an event you won’t want to miss!

Cost: $49.00
